Digital Signing with InstallShield from Certificate Store NOT Working...

05/04/2016 2885 views

HI all,

Our old digital signature (.pfx file) is expiring soon so we are renewing to the newer type recommended by Microsoft.  What we received is a .p7s file, which I believe is the actual file we need, and a .crt file, which I believe is the issuer's certificate.  Anyway, I imported each into the Certificate Store - Trusted Root Certification Authorities and all indications were things went fine.

However, when I switch from the .pfx file, remove the old password, and switch to the one I need in the Certificate Store, the build errors on each sign attempt...

[CODE]SigningHelper: error 0x80092006 while attempting to sign file
ISDEV : error -1027: Failed signing <file name>[/CODE]

Any ideas what might be going wrong?  I don't believe we received any password and I am not being prompted for one at build time.

Help Appreciated!!!

Thanks in advance!!!!

  • I believe IT has to export a .pfx file with a password from the new cert. they installed. Hopefully that is the solution, but still waiting for the exported file.
  • Well, got the exported file, but still not go. It works fine from the command, but not through InstallShield 2015.
